Madigan, who came off the bench in the Pool D opener, says it's a "dream" to start for Ireland.

He told Ireland's official website: "It's a big lift but I don't use selection to compare myself to other players. I view it as an opportunity for myself to start a game in a World Cup.

"It's a dream of mine to be presented with this opportunity. If I had been picked to come off the bench, or I wasn't selected to be in the 23, then I'd deal with that on an individual basis. I wouldn't be looking at who is starting."

He added: "It's about what I can control and, for me, that's going out and leading the team around the pitch and doing my best to make the players around me look as good as possible."
